It’s a destination affair filled with coral peonies a la Wayne Riley Flowers, glamorous design by Lavender And Rose and Mediterranean views straight from a postcard.

From Greg Finck… Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat is the perfect location to tie the knot on the French Riviera. Ideally located between Nice and Monaco, this small peninsula just calls for summer laziness, turquoise seas, and easy breeze lifestyle.

It was a fabulous summer day, perfectly designed by the superstars of Lavender & Rose Weddings in the splendid venue La Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild. The day started with bride preparation at Le Grand Hôtel de Saint-Jean Cap Ferrat, a fabulous palace hotel on the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. An elegant stationery suite had been designed by Mister M Studio, reflecting the glamorous mindset of this wedding. A stunning Rime Arodaky’s gown and some Jimmy Choos perfectly enhanced Maryam’s natural and effortless beauty, while the groom had chosen a bespoke tuxedo and a bow tie for timeless elegance.

We then took Maryam and David to a cliff near the sea for their first look. We found a deserted place by the beach for an intense and emotional moment, which will never be forgotten. The ceremony then took place in the splendid Villa Ephrussi de Rothschild, which had been perfectly prepared and designed by Lavender & Rose. Receptionists with flower crowns welcomed the guests, giving them their escort card and a rose, while a jazz band was playing. The stage for the reception had been glorified by the floral design of Wayne Riley Flowers, and everything was ready for a perfect sunset wedding ceremony.

The cocktail hour then took place in the gardens of La Villa, with fine food and wine by Lenôtre, a famous French caterer. The day finally ended with an elegant outdoor diner and a splendid table design. The culmination of a fabulous summer day on the French Riviera!

Romantic Provencal Fig + Berry Wedding Inspiration

This darling shoot from French Wedding Style and Cat Hepple has me wrapped around it’s little finger. From the festive fig, berry and olive branch detailing to the wildly enchanting stationery by Nice Plume to the to-die-for dessert bar from Chef A Domicile—that dessert bar will make you need a croquembouche in your life. It’s everything I envision the perfect Provence wedding to be, and you can feast your eyes on it all here. Also, don’t miss the pretty in motion from Story Of Your Day!

From French Wedding StyleSet in the inspiring grounds of Chateau Belfonds, with it’s magnificent entrance archway, thought-provoking orchard and the stunning and contrasting background of olive farms and mountain peaks, this shoot oozes Provence.

The shoot was inspired by the warm soft Provençal light and we wanted to capture the tranquil essence of such a beautiful area, with its captivating scenery. As French weddings are often a day of two parts – the Civil Ceremony and then the Wedding celebrations – we explored two bridal ensembles.

For the Civil Ceremony, and the fashion forward bride, we showcased two two-piece bridal outfits: a low-waisted skirt by French designer Laure de Sagazan paired with either a stomach-skimming high street fashion top or a glamorous gold top.

For the main wedding celebrations amongst the olive groves, our bride shone in a gold inspired Truvelle creation with a layered chiffon skirt that billowed in the Provençal breeze. The culinary creations from the shoot drew on the surrounding area’s floral bounty of figs, blackberries and olives. The dessert bar featured a fig and chocolate éclair, mini blackberry clafoutis mini fig tartlets, macarons and a traditional croquembouche freshly made that morning at the local patisserie in Grignan.

From Greg FinckIt can be tricky to attend to the wedding of an English and a German during the soccer worldcup. England had just been beaten by Uruguay the day before, and Germany was heading to being the next world champion. This however didn’t even bring a cloud over Nicky and Daniel’s chateau wedding in Provence.

Nicky and Daniel are a wonderful couple from London, who had decided to tie the knot under the blue sky of sunny Provence. A fabulous day at Château Grimaldi, a private chateau in Aix-en-Provence, with a stunning scenery and a pool embedded in the middle of castle ruins. This place vehicles all the beauty and magical light of Provence. Everything here is about pastel colors, soft and warm light, and the smell of lavender and olive groves.

Nicky and Daniel’s day had been perfectly designed by Lavender&Rose, with their usual touch of beauty and elegance. Floral design by Wayne Riley Flowers, perfectly matched the location’s softness, with in particular splendid rose bouquets for the bride and bride’s maids. Nicky’s effortless beauty had been enhanced by a bespoke Caroline Castigliano’s gown, and a pair of Christian Louboutin’s high heels.

The ceremony took place in Château Grimaldi’s private chapel, adding much intimacy to that very emotional moment. Once more the design was fabulous, with candles illuminating that intimate dark chapel. The cocktail took place just near by the pool, in the middle of castle ruins, while a jazz band was playing and guests savoring some Champagne. We leveraged the beautiful afternoon light for a lovely couple session in the middle of olive groves.

The day ended with an elegant outdoor diner, set just in front the chateau, with beautiful table setting for Lavender&Rose, and Wayne Riley Flowers. The sun was setting on a beautiful, and I could not help but taking our lovely couple in a lavender field, just nearby, for some last shots with the last rays of sun and a fabulous light.
